Congressman Al Wynn Should be Proud of Energy Vote

Congressman Al Wynn (D-MD4) voted for the Energy Policy Act of 2005. It was a good vote for his district constituents and for America. It was a good vote for mitigation of global climate change and for improvements in local air quality. It was a good vote for keeping electricity prices low. It was a good vote for reducing our dependence on imported oil. And he does not promote it but he had two amendments approved in the bill to enhance hydrogen production for fuel cells and wind power.

Congressman Wynn has been right on all of our needed local projects, including National Harbor, the Woodrow Wislon Bridge replacement, the Intercounty Connector and the Blue Line Metro to Largo Town Center. Wynn voted against the Deep Ocean Energy Resources Act this summer that would authorize additional offshore oil drilling. Prince George's County, as the richest majority black county in the country, is well represented on energy and environmental policies by 4h Congressional District Congressman Albert Wynn.
